I decided to time myself with this one and here is the one hour fifteen minutes progress. (Unfortunately I forgot to time myself cutting, but I don't think it was an hour.) I'm hoping to have a bit of sewing time tonight as DH is away on business, so watch the progress!

While I was at the area day last week, Ferret showed a quilt which had taken her 6 hours to make, including the cutting! It was a double bed quilt and absolutely gorgeous. It was from the book 'Turning 20' and really caught a few people's eyes, as she sold a lot of copies of the pattern. DS had recently requested a quilt for his new pad in Leeds - he's got a few quilts, but no doubles, and nothing suitable for a young man about town! He decided that blue would be good, but didn't want any cream in it, as he has eczema, and often gets blood on his bedding. I have been collecting blue batiks for this quilt, and decided to use this pattern to make it.
